Carmel College celebrated 30 years of Catholic Education with the Opening and Blessing of three new buildings last week (Friday 24 February), with His Grace Archbishop Mark Coleridge in attendance for the big unveiling. 

The new buildings include the completion of an 1800 seat Multipurpose Hall and Performing Arts Centre, staff Administration Building, and 17 state-of-the-art classrooms, marking the end of a five-year development project. 

The development also saw upgraded car parking, amenities, landscaping, and tuckshop facilities, with two of the three stages self-funded by the College, with State Government and local community jointly funding the new Administration Building. 

Carmel College Principal Stephen Adair said, “the new facilities will allow the students at Carmel College to live their school motto - Let Their Light Shine - well into the future.” 

"Over the past 30 years we have seen Carmel College students achieve incredible things,” he said. 

“With a strong emphasis on individual pathways and holistic education, looking back on the last 30 years, it is not surprising we see our students achieving in a wide variety of fields. 

“I know Carmel College students will continue to make an impact within our community now and into the future. 

“In the last two years our students have raised more than $50,000.00 for cancer research and donated more than 250 washing baskets of hampers for the Vinnies Christmas Appeal. 

“I can’t wait to see what the next 30 years holds for Carmel College and its students who shine so brightly.” 

Brisbane Catholic Education would like to congratulate Principal Stephen Adair and the Carmel College community on the completion of these works and wish the College all the best as they embark on their 30th year of operation in 2023.
